SquareMeal Review of Din Tai Fung Covent Garden


If you trace Taiwanese restaurant royalty Din Tai Fung back to its roots, you’ll find it was doing the one-item menu trick decades before London caught on. This xiao long bao specialist came from humble beginnings, but nearly four decades on it is an industry byword for superlative steamed soup-filled dumplings. Founded in Taipei in 1980 when the owners needed to make ends meet when their cooking oil business threatened to fold, it became so successful that it has since expanded across Asia, Australia, the US and Dubai, and some of the outposts have Michelin stars to their name. Following the announcement that a Centre Point site would be the brand’s first London location, it now seems that this Covent Garden venue (formerly a Henry’s Café Bar) will be Din Tai Fung’s London flagship, with the Centre Point location opening later in the year. You can expect a menu featuring Din Tai Fung classics such as steamed chilli-crab and pork buns, or steamed chicken soup, as well as those incredible dumplings – and near hysteria from its cult fan base.
